Norway! I've visited twice, once for three months and another time for one. The drive from Oslo to Aalesund is breathtaking, but nothing beats Aalesund and the surrounding islands of Godoy, Valderoy, Giske, and so on. It is a magical place filled with good down-to-earth people, enchanting landscapes, quaint true European towns, and plenty of history. No place I have ever been has even come close.
